    In the package were 6 beautiful fat quarters in my favorite colors, three,handmade, very delicate Christmas ornaments, a Handmade Quilter's journal (my first entry was that day) and a marker. I took a picture of them, wrote thank you note and mailed it the next day.
    She really outdid herself and I feel very special because of it. Thanks again Wendy. Sue Green
    Did you find out who your secret pal is and what that person likes?

I received a package from Karole and in it was a calendar, quilt journal, heart christmas ornie, highlighting tape, 4 QT's,christmas tree candy,and a cute little note card. Thank you Karole for such a wonderful package. I tried to post a picture but it has not come through yet. I hope it does not post twice.

    All you need to do is go to the activity page for the swap, here is the link for this one http://www.quiltingboard.comgroup_ac...jsp?gracnum=92
    and it'll have your pal's name and information.
    I am glad you figured it out, but thought I'll let you know where to go for next time :mrgreen:
    And remember the deadline for the swap, those not able to meet it should let Bonni know so hopefully we can continue the swap in 2011 :thumbup:

    Life can get crazy. If you just CANNOT send your secret pal pack out, send me a pm & I'll substitute for you anonymously.

    Not quite sure where South Texas is.....seems to me we always used to call that Mexico :lol: :roll: :mrgreen: :lol:
    Almost 100% sure it's not going to Corpus or Houston, are there other towns in "South Texas"?

    Exactly Dotty. I have 3 people that didn't get a package in November. This is what will keep us from having more swaps.One of the non-senders is a very active board member. What I don't understand is not letting someone know.

    FYI, I am working out with admin the new rules for January but I can guarantee that if people don't follow through next month, it will be the end of the secret pal swaps.

    Dotty, you are such a generous and kind person. BUT I have to say I don't understand WHY someone would not be able to send..I can see sending in late due to circumstances, but why would someone not be able to send at all? In my opinion, if life is too busy and you just absolutely can't go shop, raid your stash or whatever, the least one could do is send the package they got to their pal.

    I see your generous spirit, Dotty, but we are all adults and need to be responsible.It is not fair to get something in a swap and not swap back. This is what we sign up for when we PM to participate.
    Just my opinion for what it's worth.

    Suzanne, did these people have a good reason for not sending? Did they get back to you. I guess I am puzzled at why someone would receive something and not send something back when this is what we sign up to do.

    Like I said, you are just too kind, Dotty. :D
    I guess if that is what it'll take for the swap to stay on, I am willing to do it too.

    I am so happy to find out from Suzanne that there were only 3 November Swappers and NOT 37 as Bonnie stated that didnt receive their package. That number is certainly more in line with what I counted. It is still a mystery how someone could forget, but just send me a PM with the info and I will see that they get their NOV SWAP GIFTS.

But for an extra PM, everyone would have been happy. Now 95% of us are punished for the actions of 5%...how is this fair?

    Good Evening! Been away from home all day with hubby and came home to find a wonderful package in my mailbox. Thanks to msquilter59 for a lovely gift. Included a little bag of precut squares, seam ripper, calendar, chicken Soup for the Soul word finds, quilt pattern (Furrows) and 5 lovely blue and blue and white fabrics. Beautiful!! I'll add them to my stash and eventually find something wonderful to do with them.

    Thanks again to Mary (msquilter59) for such a wonderful package!
